This is not a long story. I picked up this bikini top recently at a thrift and could not wait to get seen in public while wearing it! On a steamy 90+ degree July 5, 2021 day, I got out in it. I walked proudly about the half mile from my car to my shaded spot on the beach. People all over the place. No one’s head spun around as I walked by. I sat among a few groups of people, again, no special notice. Really, that’s it but I did take a whole bunch of pictures!! It was freakin’ hot…
Random Thoughts: Recently my wife and I attended the wedding reception for our great friends’ son and daughter-in-law. This was in Charleston, SC. We were there for about two days. When we arrived we all went shopping and stopped mostly where the woman wanted to browse. For me, being one of the two husbands there, I fell into that bored feeling of shopping with one’s wife. I eyed a few things (everything was WAY out of my price range even if I were shopping for myself), but played along schlepping from store to store. The hardest part for me was admiring all the woman out and about, in their sundresses, many on vacation. I felt like I had been transported to Lilly Pultizer-land, as those colors were predominant.
We had a nice getaway and it was great to spend the time with friends, but I will admit, I wanted to be one of the women in her sundress, strolling proudly down the street, sipping a cocktail on a patio or just shopping.
